An exciting opportunity has arisen for a part time worker in Carr Gomm’s team of Specialist Link Workers. Primarily based in the Rivers Centre in Edinburgh city centre, but with work in other NHS settings both in Edinburgh and the Lothians, the successful candidate will work with colleagues to ensure that people, usually with a diagnosis of complex PTSD and / or a history of childhood sexual abuse are supported in a person-centred way and in line with Carr Gomm’s values to identify their aims and put them into effect.
Whilst reporting to the Project Manager the Specialist Link Worker will support individuals to achieve practical tasks and arrangements as well as their ambitions.
Edinburgh Food Social is a social enterprise that works towards food justice and wellbeing by educating young people and communities about local, seasonal food. Constantly inspired by our great Scottish food culture, our aim is to promote the use of locally grown, seasonal produce to increase the awareness of good food and its impact on physical and mental health. Our work is focused on improving the life chances of people facing the challenges of poverty in our very local area of Craigmillar and then across other areas of Edinburgh, including Gracemount, Portobello and Dumbiedykes. These areas suffer significant economic deprivation, poor nutritional education, and often have poor access to healthy, local food.
We are also currently recruiting for some extra general Board members and so, if you want to join our Board but aren’t quite ready to be Chair then please still get in touch.
